What does a Therm-O-Disc do that's on the motor of my washer

Also Klixon, it is a bimetalic disc that when heated, changes physical shape. It is in the electric circuit and has a small amount of resistance value. Electric resistance in a circuit consumes power and the power is dissipated as heat. The amount of power produced is porportional to the amperes or electric current flowing in the circuit. As the motor draws more current, more heat is produced, the heat causes the disc to change parabolic shape and this movement causes electric contacts in the Therm-O-Disc device circuit to open and stops power flow thru the motor.

I cannot get the water in the water heater to drain out

Are we talking about the big water heater for the whole house?-- the a 30 ro 40 gallon water heater-- one that stands several feet tall?

What heats it?-- Electric or Gas-- or what?

You have shut off the water supply to it?--

If electric:
AND THE ELECTRIC TO IT!!-- so you don't burn out the heater elements?

Can you find any drain plug near the bottom?
Some heaters have a valve at the bottom-- does yours?

Some Electric Water heaters make you remove the heating element to drain it--
You can remove the electric wires, and slip a big deep socket over the hex shoulders on the threaded type--- Or remove the bolts on the flanged type--
Which is yours?
And it helps to open a hot water faucet somewhere-- to let air into the tank, so water can run out the bottom.

If you are talking about an instantaneous water heater, it will mean opening some union fittings on the supply and return fitting of the heater-

Tell us more, so we can help more.

I have a Paragon model 4004-20 Water Heater Timer and I moved the TIME arrow. Now the water heater is not working at all. I am thinking of just restoring full time power to the water heater. I did not...

You are not supposed to move the time arrow.

4000 series time arrow is pointed at 8:00.
To set current time, lift and rotate dial clockwise until current time lines up with pointer.
Put X2772 trippers on dial at times you want water heater to turn on.
Minimum on-off with Paragon 4000 is 1-1/2 hours because trippers are so fat.
You can replace 4000 timer with electronic timer and control exact on-off down to the minute:

Electric water heater heats about 21 gallons of water per hour.
Shower uses 6-9 gallons hot water.
Bath uses 10-12 gallons hot water.
Average water heater that is not connected to timer, runs about 3 hours a day. You can make timer pay off by keeping time schedule lower than 3 hours.

We wanted to purchase a heater for our cottage. The one were looking at was Farenheat # 30263 4000 watts at Lowes. When reading the pamphlet inside the box it stated for best results it was better to...

Hi Vicky,
Don't be mislead...
The electric heater that you saw at Lowe's is no different then any can turn any electric heater off and then turn it on as you wish will not hurt it... the only reason for that caution is that when turning off a heater that you are using regularly you can end up costing yourself more money....but in this case not because you would have it off for a very long period of time....
okay now that I have totally confused you on that one... the thermostat...
You can hook any line voltage thermostat to that heater... and for that matter you would soon find that the numbers are not that bad and you would soon find which number suits your comfort range...
So go get that heater and you will get a great price and a good product.. that will work well for you...
